2013 Caduceus "Nagual de la Naga" Arizona Red Blend

SKU #1347100

Caduceus Cellars was founded by rock frontman Maynard James Keenan. In 2002, Keenan moved to Jerome, Arizona and realized that the terroir resembled winegrowing regions he had visited all over the world. Most people think of Arizona as a dry, flat desert wasteland with no rain and sweltering heat almost every day of the year, but Arizona has its diverse regional climates, a few of which are quite suitable for growing grapes. Elevation gives the vineyard sites huge diurnal swings that allow grapes to achieve phenolic ripeness and sugar necessary for fermentation, while the cool nighttime temperatures help them to preserve acidity.

The 2013 Nagual de la Naga ($49.99) is Keenan's homage to the Italian varietals that thrive within the Arizona climate. Sangiovese with a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon, this delightful little blend is exactly how I envision the future of World Class caliber wines from Arizona. Upon immediately tasting the Naga, it is very evident how well Sangiovese takes to the AZ climate. It is a bright yet ripe, full bodied yet sophisticated, quenching yet indulgent red wine. The Naga is a true illustration of transparency in showcasing the Arizona terroir.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
